Unframing Migration, a photographic exhibition put together by Migrants Solidarity Movement and funded by the Malta Arts Fund and Heritage Malta, is currently taking place at the Heritage Malta headquarters , in Merchants Street, Valletta until 26th September . Open from Monday to Friday , opening hours are from 07:00 CEST to 16:00 CEST.
Visitors could experience life with migrants from Africa, breaking down borders of thought of the Maltese towards the Africans through photojournalism. These pictures, which involve the daily lives of Africans, and those working with them can make visitors identify themselves with them. These pictures dwell on the present, rather than the past – including very successful stories of integration. The exhibition Unframing Migration perceptions of migration assessing migrants mainly as part time foreigners, more a burden than a contribution, have to be unframed.
This ties down to the very essence of what Migrants Solidarity Movement is all about- creating cultural diversity and acceptance. Kasia Peukert, the organisation’s photographer captured those moments that many of us are not able to see . Other participating photographers are Thomas Kelsey and Malica Gaudin Delrieu . Also, as part of this exhibition , the Organisation for Friendship in Diversity , who have just organised a two week summer camp for children of migrants , as well as those of Maltese families , are bringing together a selection of photographs by a group of professional photographers , taken during the two week camp. They were sponsored by the Embassy of the United States and the Malta Institute of Professional Photography.
The theme of the exhibition on the whole has pictures of migrants from two perspectives , the latter being that of integration within our society – bringing unity in diversity .
Open from Monday to Friday , opening hours are from 7am to 4pm , please visit the exhibition taking place at the Heritage Malta headquarters . Also being open during Notte Bianca . For more info, please contact 21316708/ 99844653 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
